Costume Time

So the green frog costume is courtesy of my sister, but I made the other two. Lincoln drew a picture of what he wanted to be so if you're not sure, he's a red monster. Isaac is Ang, the avatar. If you're not sure who that is, well, I'm disappointed, but you can just google him and you'll see how awesome of a likeness I brewed up. :)
Also, Isaac is coughing in most pictures because he has pneumonia.

super boys

I took the boys out last week to take pictures with their superhero capes on. These are some of my shots.

Also, can anyone tell me how to get my pictures bigger? I used the "large" ones but they're still kind of puny.

Bend it like Isaac

Isaac is the star of his soccer team. He scored the first goal of the season and blocked several goals from the other team. I was so into the game I didn't get my camera out in time to get the goal.

This is what he did right after the goal - Raise the roof Isaac

And then you make this face because you're so elated

Throw in

Go Heat!

Oh and one other thing

I do actually have cancer, it's very small and in my thyroid so bye-bye hormone-regulating thyroid, hello, little pill. Good things about cancer - I've had 3 dinners brought over in 1.5 weeks...and iodine free salt. Seriously, I'm fine, but people are nice. Now, read my much more exciting post about Lincoln's bday.

Lincoln's 5th Birthday

Lincoln turned 5 today. Yes, 5. That's what I said, booby trap. (points if you know the reference) What, how did that happen? I don't know, but it did. And he wanted a pirate party. We were at the store a while back and he said, "mom, I want a pirate ship cake for my party." I said, okay, we can do that. Then without any way of knowing what I was thinking in my head, he said, "but I want the cake in the shape of a pirate ship, not a pirate ship toy on the cake." What the heck, how did he read my mind? He knows me well. Because that was exactly what I was thinking. You saw the picture of the cake. I think it's pretty awesome. The poop deck almost fell over - it was being poopy (ha, I'm so funny.)

When Lincoln turned 3 we went all out and had a lion bday complete with pin the tail on the lion and crafts and games and cake all relating to the lion theme. This year I wised up. We had kids over, watched a movie, ate pizza and cake, and colored a pirate ship picture. Perfect. OH, and here's the amazing invitation I created.

I know, amazing right? You're all thinking, Gosh where does Anna come up with this stuff? Well, you too can create your own invites by going to the paint accessory on your computer. Moving on.

This is Lincoln pretending to be shy after coloring his pirate ship picture. He's not shy. The other day he asked Jon's boss to play sumo with him. At our house to play sumo you take your shirt off and grunt and bump stomachs. Mom does not play sumo.

I can't tell if he had fun.

She's not sure if she's having fun.

But she does seem to be engrossed by the movie.

This little friend has been telling Lincoln for several days about his present. Lincoln was very excited.

And Lincoln seemed to be very pleased with his cake.

And before parents came, we opened up our plethora (would you say I have a plethora?) of costumes and the kids all dressed up in the boys costumes and had a blast.

I learned it from my mind

Conversation tonight

Lincoln said: "Mom, did you know that robots have electricity inside?"

Me: Yeah, I did know that

Lincoln: I knew that too, I learned it from my mind. I just thought and thought and pulled it out.

Me: Cool.

Elijah's almost 2

Getting a haircut. So cute

Well, tomorrow is Elijah's 2nd birthday. I'm not sure how this happened. But here are a few things I love about him.
1. He's started "reading." It's hilarious. He gets EVERY SINGLE book out of the book bucket (I don't so much love that part) and then finds one he likes. He opens it and points to things and says strings of gibberish that is so dang sweet.
2. He has a dimple above his eyes. I want to eat it. That sounds weird but it's true.
3. He adores his older brothers. They hand him a spatula and he runs around in pandemonium playing "the swatting baby." Yes, that means he's supposed to chase them and hit them. Hey, they're the ones that came up with the crazy game. He just goes along. Don't you wish you lived at my house? We play all sorts of cool games, like "little Indian worm" and have awesome dance parties.
4. Elijah loves to dance. Enough said.
5. He gives serious wet kisses and zerberts. He's very proud of his belly button and wants to zerbert yours. Priceless.
6. His hair is so blond it disappears in water.
7. When I say "I love you" he nods his head, like, I know mom.
